Nothing Stops a Bullet Like a Job

The totes are the latest of Artecnica's Design With Conscience Projects, the canvas totes benefit the organization through part of the proceeds going back to the organization and features famous quotes by the program's founder and Jesuit priest Father Greg Boyle in calligraphic motifs.

All the artwork was created by ex-gang members and individually screen-printed by their collective in their Los Angeles studios in collaboration with Alex Lin, the award winning graphic designer of the design firm Studio Lin in NYC.
